Cushing Historical Society will present its second Music in the Barn concert Sunday, July 14, at 3 p.m. in the former South Cushing Baptist Church, an 1854 structure full of charm and good acoustics.

The concert featured Midcoast a cappella vocal ensemble VoXX: Voice of Twenty. This concert is the fourth and final performance of their summer season Madrigals and More series. The program is built around a core of works that celebrate the part song as manifested through the ages, with music that ranges from serene to upbeat and sacred to secular. Repertoire covers both a broad spectrum of time, from medieval through the present, and of style, from rondeau, round, and Renaissance polyphony through contemporary harmony. Included will be works by Farmer, Lauridsen, Palestrina, Pinkham, Poulenc, Purcell, Weekles and more.

This performance will take place not in the Cushing Historical Society's barn but in its church on Salt Pond Road, which connects Route 97 in Friendship with Pleasant Point Road in Cushing. Suggested donation is $10 at the door. For more information, call 354-6351.
